Muscle aches can be caused by many common, day-to-day tasks, including sitting in an un-ergonomic desk chair or working with an unsupportive trapeze partner. Catch a calm with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a one-hour massage at Natural Health Solutions in Apple Valley (a $70 value). This Groupon is valid for a Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, lomi-lomi, or sports massage.
Dr. Brandon Mannie's staff of trained professionals includes licensed massage therapist Andrea, who combines a friendly demeanor with skilled hands to oust stress. Andrea enacts a personally suited massage style to quell each client’s particular aches, pains, or fears of an impending algebra pop quiz. Swedish massage’s gentle quintet of kneading, rolling, vibrational, percussive, and tapping strokes boosts circulation, and deep tissue’s pinpointed pressure mediates lifelong rivalries between biceps and triceps. For expectant mothers, the prenatal massage quells growing pains associated with an incubating a young one. Andrea may also utilize lomi-lomi strokes, which mimic Swedish-style kneading, heated bamboo canes, or sports massage, which enhances athletic performance by flushing toxins, waste, and expired Gatorade from the body.
The Wrap Advantage
Body wraps increase circulation in target areas. When coupled with botanical extracts and gentle warmth, this can have a range of positive effects. Those effects are the goals of The Wrap Advantage, and they can include everything from weight loss to smoother skin. Some of this takes place through a process called lipolysis, in which the ingredients applied with the wrap help break down fat cells. Wraps are also intended to release the toxins that can build up in fats, as well as lessen cellulite, and the staff at The Wrap Advantage can help each patron identify their own health and aesthetic goals.
